Manchester United supporters appeared confused when Dinamo Zagreb’s manager confirmed that Angelo Henriquez would join Dinamo Zagreb for €1m.
Henriquez has a superb goal tally since joining the Croatian champions at the start of the season and also had an impressive record when on loan at Real Zaragoza last season. Selling him for less than £1m would continue the trend of United allowing players to leave for next to nothing.
At only 20, the striker also has a good record at international level and United fans appear united in their confusion at why the talented striker would be allowed to leave for such a low fee.
@PeoplesPerson_ poor business. Quality player. Same thing bound to happen to Adnan

@PeoplesPerson_ Why sell someone for €1m now? Such a small amount. Seems pointless bothering in the first place if they don’t get a chance..

@PeoplesPerson_ just another on the pile of players who’ve hardly played yet been hyped up before we buy them, sold for nothing

United allowed players like Shinji Kagawa to leave in the summer for low fees whilst agreeing to pay Nani’s wages in their entirety when he joined Sporting Lisbon on loan.
The club’s apparent willingness to allow players to leave on the cheap is all the more frustrating given Chelsea have recouped over £100m for David Luiz and two players who barely played for the club in Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.
